VŪkingur ”lafsson Philip Glass: Piano Works Limited Vinyl 2LP Set

A year ago Philip Glass handpicked some pianists to perform all of his Etudes together at the Barbican in London. VŪkingur ”lafsson was one of them and according to the press he was ďthe highlight of the eveningĒ (Sean and Heard International). The Financial Times claimed: ďBest of all was ”lafsson in the supersensitive stillness of Etude 5Ē Following on in the tradition of their recordings of Philip Glassí music with Gidon Kremer and Daniel Hope, Deutsche Grammophon has now chosen the music of this founding father of minimal music for the debut album on the label of rising star pianist VŪkingur ”lafsson. ”lafsson is an up-and-coming visionary pianist not only of technical sublimity but also of remarkable entrepreneurial abilities. He serves as Artistic Director to both the Vinterfest in Sweden and the ReykjavŪk Midsummer Music.
